He can be unpredictable. He is certainly unconventional. He is boorish at times.
But he is highly effective.
The US is energy independent. The economy is doing very well. There are no new wars.
A week ago democrats are the media were praying for a war between the US and Iran and now all is quiet on the Eastern Front. Trump has tightened sanctions on Iran.
democrats have sided with Iran against the US. The media glorified a demon who killed and maimed thousands of American soldiers (and from the grave killed two more today) and killed at least 1500 Iranians in 2019 who were protesting high gasoline prices. Contrary to what the idiotic left wing media tells you, Iranians are not unified in mourning.
Protests erupt against the Revolutionary Guards at Amir-Kabir University in Tehran due to authorities' incompetence and negligence after the recent plane crash that killed more than 176 people.

Donald Trump has negotiated the minefield successfully. In contrast to his predecessors, he accomplished a desperately needed goal- ridding the world of a terrorist on a par with Osama Bin Laden without initiating a global conflict. It made me realize that the world would be a very different place had Donald Trump been President in 2000.
The twin towers would still be standing. There might never have been a war in Iraq.
Osama Bin Laden would be dead.
Bill Clinton had at least ten opportunities to kill Bin Laden.
Bill Clinton told Chris Wallace during their interview on “FOX News Sunday” that he had battle plans drawn to go into Afghanistan, overthrow the Taliban and launch a full-scale search for Usama bin Laden after the attack on the USS Cole in 2000.
But Michael Scheuer, who led the CIA effort to get bin Laden, is telling a different story. Scheuer says in The New York Daily News that plans for an invasion were never presented or discussed in his presence. And he says the only order he received following the attack on the Cole was to come up with a target list for air strikes. He also says Mr. Clinton had 10 chances to kill or capture bin Laden before 9/11, but the president did not use the information he was given.
In the scant hours before the 9-11 attacks, Clinton boasted that he could have killed Bin Laden.
From Buzz Patterson’s book “Dereliction of Duty”:
[Berger] picked up the phone at one of the busy controller consoles and called the president. Amazingly, President Clinton was not available. Berger tried again and again. Bin Laden was within striking distance. The window of opportunity was closing fast. The plan of attack was set and the Tomahawk [missile] crews were ready. For about an hour Berger couldn’t get the commander in chief on the line…
Finally, the president accepted Berger’s call. There was discussion, there were pauses – and no decision. The president wanted to talk with his secretaries of Defense and State. He wanted to study the issue further. Berger was forced to wait. The clock was ticking. The president eventually called back. He was still indecisive. He wanted more discussion…
Clinton also refused a Sudan overture to hand over Bin Laden.
But he wasn’t willing to kill Soleimani, despite the knowledge that it was Soleimani supplying EFP’s to Iraq and Afghanistan. Despite Iran turning Americans into hamburger, obama wanted a trophy for his mantle and was willing to overlook everything.
Trump had Soleimani ended. I have little doubt he would have ended Bin Laden following the Cole attack.
The difference between Trump and Clinton and Obama is that Trump is willing to do the right thing, popular or not. He puts the US first. Seeing what he has done and what he’s willing to do convinces me.
The world would be a very different place today.
